A friend, Liz, and I flew down to Central Otago to surprise an old friend of ours. Melissa runs a very cool craft shop called Transpire located at Bannockburn in Central Otago (on the outskirts of the town Cromwell).
It's been going for a year now and it was an amazing thing to surprise someone (Melissa swore at us! ha!). It was fabulous to see her shop in person and to buy a few things from her too. She is very talented, particularly around spinning and roving.
Transpire is located in a very old building, which is gorgeous. You can read about Bannockburn here.
It was 32 degrees celcius at 10.40am......
Central Otago is a gorgeous part of New Zealand - do pop in top to visit if you ever are in that neck of woods!
